The “Shim Sham” The authors objective is to capture these steps and unusual musical counts in written Dance Notes format, going to great lengths to break down the steps and insure the dancer has WEIGHT on the correct foot, etc, to accomplish a faithful execution of some tricky foot work complicated by some unusual musical dance counts. A corollary objective is to set the record straight, dispelling ALL variations. The completion of this book was a labor of love, dedicated by the author to his late mother, Gertrude LeBlanc Foreman, a pioneer of the dance industry in southwest Louisiana (Acadiana) who taught dance for over 50 years and fueled my passion to dance.
